While last month’s challenge was all about the New Year and the New Rear, this month we’re challenging you to “Love Yo’Self” a little bit more. Most people think of Valentines Day and L-O-V-E when they think of February, and we’re asking you — day-by-day, challenge-by-challenge — to fall in love with yourself. With suggested workouts, good eats, positive body image activities and FUN (who else challenges you to dance to a song or whole playlist about butts?!), each day you’ll be challenged to take your self-love to the next level — and even set a goal to reach by the end of the month!

Now, here’s what you can expect for the first week of the new monthly FBC!
What to Expect This Week of the Fit Bottomed Challenge: February 2-8, 2015
Monday, February 2: For Munch It Monday, your task is to make a dish with a healthy veggie that’s in season this month: kale! Head on over to Fit Bottomed Eats for suggestions on what to make!
Tuesday, February 3: What does being “fit” look like? No, really? What does it look like for different athletes? And different types of people? For you? For your friends? Take a full five minutes to ponder this question (if you need help getting started, read this post) and begin to realize that it’s not always what you see in the magazines …
Wednesday, February 4: It’s Work It Wednesday, and today we’re challenging you to see how long you can hold a plank and a wall-sit. Record your times, so that you can refer to them again later … that way you can see your strength improve as the month goes on!
Thursday, February 5: The comparison trap. It’s SO easy to fall into it. But it’s also a sure-fire way to beat down your self confidence. Get tips on how to break free from it here.
Friday, February 6: It’s a winter wonderland out there … and we have the workout to make the most of it. But don’t worry; you can do it inside — with no other equipment but your bod. Get the interval workout here!
Saturday, February 7: We like fit butts and we cannot lie. So, for this Booty-full Saturday, we challenge you to dance around to your favorite booty-themed song. Or, heck, entire playlist. Need suggestions for what to groove to? Oh, we got ’em here!
Sunday, February 8: You know what boosts self confidence? Setting goals and reaching them! So today, we want you to set a SMART fitness goal for the month and share it with us using #FBC on your fave social media site. Get the 411 on SMART goals and how to set them here. Oh, and remember, those who use #FBC will be entered to win fit prizes throughout the month!
So now that you know what’s on tap for this week and what’s to come in February, our only question is, who’s in?! Feel free to save and share this image … everywhere!
